The follow-up to Little Dragon‘s 2009 Machine Dreams is on its way, and if the below track is anything to go by, it’s going to be another killer.
The running title for the Swedish electro crew’s new LP is Ritual Union and the first taste from it is called ‘Nightlight’:
Little Dragon have been keeping quite busy of late. Amidst the writing and recording of LP #3, they have also found the time to help out a few fellow artists on varying projects. Among these are Dave Sitek (TV on the Radio) on his debut Maximum Balloon LP as well as collaborating with GORILLAZ for their Plastic Beach LP. They also joined them on tour across Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong for the ‘Gorillaz: Escape to Plastic Beach Tour’.
Little Dragon have a bunch of their own shows between now and August, starting with a few in the USA over the coming weeks before heading back to Europe for the summer festival circuit. Get all the deets here.
Ritual Union will drop on July 11 via Peacefrog Records. If you head over there now though you may be able to score a very limited (300 copies only) one sided 7″ orange vinyl collectors edition!

And finally, a live performance of one of their older tracks, ‘After The Rain’ which was shot in January 2011:
